SmartGen 12V Battery Charger 6AMP, This powerful yet compact BAC06 12V battery charger is manufactured by SmartGen. A battery charger is imperative for any generator as it provides the charge needed to start the generator. If you need to run your generator and the battery is flat you will be left in the dark. Having a battery charger means that whenever you want to start the generator there is enough power to turn it over. It is difficult to remember to charge the battery manually and one is inclined to forget. This battery charger does it automatically for you. The unit has been designed to switch power structure with a wide range of AC voltage input while being small in volume, light weight and highly efficient. It comes with short circuit and reverse connection protection and the charging voltage and current csn be adjusted with the potentiometer.

This unit can operate at temperatures between -30 degrees Celsius and 55 degrees Celsius. I can be stored safely in temperatures of between -40 degrees Celsius and 85 degrees Celsius. It weighs a mere 0.69kg with dimensions of 154.4mm x 94.5mm x 56mm (length x width x height). According to the charging properties of a lead acid battery the battery charger uses a 2 stage charging method and the charge mode is constant current. When the battery voltage is under the threshold it is in constant charge mode. When the battery is above the threshold the charging current decreases as the battery voltage rising until it reaches the set voltage and then the charge mode is turned into floating charge.
